    Google Docs Viewer now supports ZIP and RAR formats!


    Google has introduced a new feature. Google Docs Viewer is the viewer which is used by almost all of us who access mails via Gmail. Gmail users were able to view .doc, .docx, .ppt or any other office format right from the browser. GMail just redirects to Google Docs Viewer on clicking the View Link. But it wasn’t supporting ZIP and RAR file. What i mean by this is users can’t click on view if the file sent as the attachment in GMail is of ZIP or RAR format. But starting from today, users need not download the file to view the contents of RAR or ZIP File. They can view the contents of ZIP or RAR file right from the Browser by clicking on View!



    This will bring up a view that includes all of the files in the archive, the file types, and the size of those files.

    When you hover over the list you can activate a menu by clicking the “Actions” button. You’ll be able to View items supported by Google Docs Viewer and Print (PDF) also Save the same to Google Docs and Download appear for all files.

    ZIP and RAR archives that are embedded inside other archives also work. For example, if you have a RAR file inside a ZIP file (like in our example above) you can just click on that file to access the embedded archive.

    This feature extends to Google Docs for mobile, too. For each viewable file (including embedded ZIP or RAR archives) there is a link to view.

    What do you think about this feature? Does this help you? I liked it!
